today, it's about politics, too. at issue, whether big spending cuts should be locked in before the government is allowed to borrow more money to pay it bills. president obama held his second news conference in a week tells you the biggest headline. there is no deal. so the politicians from the president on down are trying to prove they're the one most looking out for you. >> it would be very helpful for us to be able to say to the american people our fiscal house is in order. >> the president wassed a today month that it's impossible to get a deal unless and until the republicans agree to raise some taxes. in turn, republicans say that before he spends anymore time lecturing them, she stop giving press conferences and put his proposals down on paper. but in the hunt for specifics, it is crystal clear the president is not ready to take the lead. >> if they show me a serious plan, i'm ready to move. even if it requires some tough decisions on my part. >> a lot of questions tonight about where this is heading and how it will impact you. the president's initial deadline, tonight, w
to ask the big oil companies to give up one dime not one dime of their $4 billion annual subsidy. they have refused to ask big corporations to give up one dime in their corporate loopholes. what we are negotiating with is a group of people who won't compromise. a group of people who have said we want the middle class to pay more taxes so that big corporations can pay less. we want seniors to lose their medicare so that big oil companies can continue to foost on their subdis. that's what the problem is. >> the case that republicans have taken a hard line on talks, at the same time democrats are taking what sounds like a hard line on entitlements. let me read a statement from leader pelosi that says we continue to oppose benefit cuts in social security and medicare. these pillars should not be used a as piggy bank to subsidize tax cuts for the wealthy. are democrats not just as guilty of failing to compromise as republicans are in this case? >> no, absolutely not. what we have said and i think most americans would agree with this is the middle class and seniors should not be asked
casey anthony, big day. she's getting out of jail on sunday. will you be doing some commentary this weekend? or are you taking this weekend off? >> i may very well, but certainly i'll be talking about it on monday morning. >> have a good weekend, whatever you might end up doing. good to see you as always. thank you so much for being here with me in the cnn news room. i of course will be with you tomorrow and sunday. >>> the president said he's willing to think small if he has to in order to break the stalemate over raising the debt limit. also new apologies from media mogul rupert murdoch. he met with the family of a murdered teenager whose phone was hacked by his now defunct tabloid. there are fast-moving developments in this scandal. it's ungulfing his entire news empire. and as casey anthony prepares to get out of jail on sunday, will she shun the media spotlight or will she try to capitalize on her supposed fame? i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >> president obama back at the bully pulpit for the second time this week to make sure ameripay bill. he went bef
with markets in a bad way. >>> and then the big tease. julie yanni w giuliani. will think of these folks get in the game? the summer of speculation. good morning, thursday, july 14, 2011, i'm chuck todd. >>> and the nbc campaign team is doing a lot of prep today. doing that behind the scenes but why not to get right to my first reads of the morning, hurdling towards the huge financial calamity. ratings agency moody's put the government on notice for a possible credit downgrade. as leaders try to broker a deal, personal relationships are breaking down. president obama and house majority leader eric cantor clashed yesterday after the president frustrated by the lack of progress, saying it was time to stop postures and get the deal done. cantor went to the press telling his version of story. cantor said, obama got very agitated seemingly and sat there long enough. and no other president, ronald reagan, wouldn't sit here and he said to me, eric, don't call my bluff. democrats dispute his version of the event. one said cantor's account of tonight's meeting is completely overblown. cantor rudely i
that and in exchange for some minor tweaking of medicare, but nothing that really gives the republicans too big a win on that issue. and they would also argue, to gloria's point earlier, that you actually need this. this is not just a win for democrats, you need it because you need democratic votes to get this through because you're going to lose so many republicans who simply won't vote to extend the debt ceiling under any circumstances. so that's the calculus if you went with the middle deal, there would be an entirely different math for a tax reform package if you went with that larger deal that's more in the $4 trillion range. >> the irony here to me is that a larger deal would in many ways be easier to cut because it's so obvious what you would have to do. if you do a smaller deal, then you have to have eric cantor lay out by piece by piece by piece, cut by cut, by cut, what he would do if you don't have the revenue side of it. >> but to get the bigger deal, you need trust that they would actually then do comprehensive tax reform, rewrite the code so the republicans would make the case we didn't
when negotiations with the taliban move forward and it also may have very big repercussions for the u.s. effort in the south. people called president hamid karzai's brother a corrupt gangster. but the cia's former head of counterterrorism says the u.s. may miss him. >> it's quite like live that what follows is going to be something that will not work to our interest. >> reporter: an afghan official says he was gunned down in his own home, shot in the head and chest by his own guard. the taliban took credit, but it's not clear if the shooter was really working for them. >> the united states condemns in the strongest possible terms the murder of president karzai's half brother in kandahar. >> a u.s. official said quote, while we must deal with ahm ahmed wali karzai, he's widely understood to be corrupt and narcotics trafficker. the state department and u.s. military were trying to build trust in the afghan government. they frequently criticized ahmed wali, but the cia worked with him. >> i think often parts of the u.s. government were working at cross purposes where ahmed wali was conce
. >>> people love their cars, traffic jams are part of the daily life, but this weekend, the closure of a big chunk of the 405 freeway is causing added worry. it is shut down for a construction project. and residents are so worried they're calling this carmageddon, but so far, we're not seeing it. no gridlock. let's bring in cnn's kareen wynter who is above the 405 there. and we know ten miles of the 405 is closed, so no traffic there. what about everywhere else? >> reporter: everywhere else from our viewpoint all looks good. now a short time ago, we checked out some of the alternate routes officials were encouraging the public to take. it's really, really quiet right now. we saw a lot more people on bikes, pedestrians, people walking their dogs than we did people in their cars. one of our photographers -- our producers, rather, michael kerry took a picture on the other side of town near the pacific coast highway. usually an extremely congested area this time of year really any time. and that was another alternate route that officials were encouraging people to take if they were headed to l.a
commitment to big government. what they would like to see is the government sweated down. that's the point they've been trying to make. and there are honest differences and people have a very different view of what kind of society we ought to live in. >> but at a certain point, david, when there was a big deal on the table, and if as you say the president could have brought nancy pelosi along, and i agree with you i think he could have, the republicans would have gotten a great deficit reduction deal if they hadn't committed to the no tax pledge, right? >> but gloria, asking any party to commit to a $1 trillion of tax increases is an awful big lift for a party that is all along stood for lower taxes. and when they also feel a lot of these cuts are going to turn out to be illusory. their experience in the past they sign onto the bargains and they feel the democrats eventually wind up getting what they wanted and what they were promised never materializes. >> but there's a big difference between that and nothing. you know? a big difference. [ overlapping speakers ] >> where do you see the mi
? >> the problem with a myny deal, we have a maxi problem. the big problems aren't going to go away if you cut a mini deal. all it does is delay the moment of truth. apt so i'd say better now than then. if we can't, then we'll take the savings we can get now and we will relitigate this as we get closer to the election. >> all right. in addition to dealing with the content of negotiating this deal, there is a p.r. battle involved here as well. senate majority leader harry reid has had a lot to say about what is standing in the way of getting something done. let's take a listen. >> the obstacle, and i want to be very clear, to finding common ground is republicans stubborn insistence on proit canning tax funding and give-aways to corporations and individualindividuals that don'd the give-aways. >> the president has also framed this choice. earlier in week as kids going to college, or tax breaks for corporate jets. i mean it's something they said with the miles per hour public is an easy choice -- said that american public, an easy choice for them. what is the plan for that bat? >> senator reid ha
. anyway, it was pretty nasty last night. >> strong storms. woke me up. today's big debate in the weather center is whether to go with 99 or 100 for the high temperature. >> does it feel any different? >> i don't think so. you get the idea. extreme heat this afternoon. 78 at reagan national. 75 at baltimore. 18 in ocean city. no thanks. win chest -- 81 in ocean city. no thanks. winchester 73 degrees. we've got a blow off of the cloud cover associated with the storms still hanging in the area that will be with us for the morning hours. that may actually hold the temperature down a degree or two and keep us only in the upper 90s for daytime highs. we're not the only ones. i'm show you more on that in a little bit. the forecast partly cloudy, hot and humid. could be an isolated storm later today. most of us will be dry. we've got a heat advisory which goes into effect at noon. here's your temperature. 99 degrees. it won't feel that cool. >> the cooldown is coming. >> yes. >> thank you, tucker. >>> some of the top stories this morning, baltimore city police issued an amber alert for an 8-year
a big deal, $4 trillion, or whether we're going to have a smaller deal of $2 trillion, but the real issue is whether or not we're going to have a fair deal, a deficit-reduction package which represents the interests of working people and the vast majority of our people or whether we're going to have a deficit reductio-reduction packh ends up reflecting the needs of the wealthiest people in this country who are do phenomenally well and the largest corporations in this country who, in many instances, are making record-breaking profits. that's really what the debate is about. now, the republican position on deficit reduction has been extremely clear and is consistent with their right-wing ideology. despite the fact that our current deficit crisis has been caused by two wars unpaid for, huge tax breaks that have gone to the wealthiest people in this country, and a recession caused by the deregulation of wall street and the lack of revenue coming in as a result of that recession. our republican friends are adamant that while the richest people in this country are becoming much richer, wh
's talk about some of the big issues right now. jobs, jobs, jobs. it's a crisis, a game of chicken going on in washington right now between the president, the did democrats on one side, republican leadership on the other side. how big of a deal is this august 2nd deadline for raising the debt ceiling? >> well, because i haven't been in government in a long time, i don't know what options the treasury department will have if the debt kreceiling is not lift. my guess is they can pay the bills for a while, after which they won't be able to. so if we let that deadline come and go and we really raise questions about when or political system is mature enough even to pay its bills, i think it's trouble. i realize the idea of voting against raising the debt ceiling has always had great appeal to people. even in good times, a bunch of people vote against raising it because it looks like a free vote. >> when he was senator, president obama didn't vote to raise the debt ceiling. he regrets it now. >> but, you know, when you're not president and you think the vote's there, seems like a freebie and y
saying, only a long-term option here? >> the president believes that we have to think big and act big, because as i mentioned before, there have been events and decisions that have led us to this point and they include the terrible recession, the worst since the great depression we went through. the fact that because congress wouldn't act, he apointed the commission and they delivered a report. we have the outside report. and we have the president's framework he put forward and the republican budget that passed the house, all of which describe a problem and a solution in generally the same terms. the big exception is three to one, they propose solutions that demand a balanced approach which the president supports. this is not the kind of situation that comes around very frequently and the president believes that it is worth the inevitable political difficulty making tough choices creates to get this done for the american people, for the american economy. so he does not share the view, does not believe it is wise to pursue a short-term solution that essentially would be kicking the can
. president. my name is amanda. i am a big fan. i am originally from iowa. >> nice. >> yes. i am an atheist. in 2008, you asserted no organization receiving taxpayer funds would be able to discriminate in hiring or firing based on a person's religion. however, you've not rescinded the executive order that permits this discrimination. when it is difficult for a person to get a job based on her skills, what would you say to a woman who has been denied employment because of her religion or lack of religious beliefs by a taxpayer funded organization? >> this is a very difficult issue, but a more narrow one and i think might be implied. it is very straightforward that people should not be discriminated against for race, gender, sexual orientation or religious affiliation. what has happened is there has been a carved out dating back to president clinton's presidency for religious organizations and they're hiring for particular purposes, and this is always a tricky part of the first amendment. on the one hand, the first amendment ensures there's freedom of religion. on the other hand, we want to m
